"Get ready for something big July 20th! "Pleasantly plump teenager Tracy Turnblad teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration after landing a spot on a local TV dance show.
Not that I'm surprised that I liked it but yes that I liked it as much
as I did. Keeping some of the lovely John Water garishness but
mainstreaming it enough to make it mainstream. John Travolta in the
Divine part is truly divine. He went for it and played it for real. I
thought it was actually moving at times and the illusion works,
beautifully. Michelle Pfeiffer opening a new chapter in her career, the
thin as a rail, gorgeous, middle age bitch. Great fun to watch.
Christopher Walken, adorable. I had hoped a bigger splash of a dance
number between Travolta and Walken - after all they were playing
husband and wife in a musical and when are we going to see that again.
Their moments together are, how can I put it? Nice, very nice. Nikki
Blonsky inherits Riki Lake's oversize heroine with gusto and lots of
energy. Allison Jenney, as usual, steals every moment she's in. Alas,
far too few, and John Waters plays a quick cameo as a Baltimore
flasher. What else do you want out of life.
